It has come to my attention that team DefkoN was not added to the brackets because they missed the signup deadline up 7 minutes. Leaving the brackets scrambled with 19 participants.
This is unfair since the thread advertising this holiday tourney was removed from the stickied list and hidden in a section that is rarely checked, so it is understandable if they did not even know the tournament existed until the last minute.
So here's whats up, I believe it is highly unfair to have them not participate because they missed the deadline by 7 minutes, especially given the circumstances. AND, the brackets are set at 19 participants, leaving MERC in a negatively handicapped position requiring us to win MORE matches than most other teams to come in first.
If DefkoN is not added to the roster by the start of the tourney tomorrow morning I AM DONE with UCG.
So think about this
Couldnt you contact UCG admins (since I understand you are in UCG Staff), and spoke with them about this?
They kick you, and I would do same. With this topic, you make bad reputation of organization with you represent as a staff member.
About the situation, I don't think that moving the topics make ppl not see it. Every one who is competitive player, and wants to play tournament will have no troubles finding it.
Breaking own rules for adding team? You create the rules for something, but ofcourse, you can make exceptions, but as I said, creating topic about it when u are from staff is the last thing you do.
